IV therapy is a treatment that involves the infusion of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and amino acids directly into the bloodstream. Formulas can be customized to each patient, their condition, symptoms and needs. In this way, IV therapy is a unique and individualized therapy and can be used to treat a huge variety of conditions.
So what is the benefit of infusing these nutrients directly into your bloodstream?
When we eat foods, vitamins and supplements, we are relying on our digestive system to fully break down and absorb all the essential nutrients. Poor digestion for any reason (think: SIBO, IBS, IBD, Celiac disease) can affect this process. Even chronic stress affects how well we digest our food – more stress equals poorer digestion.
Infusions ensure these essential nutrients get to where they are needed most. It also allows for higher doses to be achieved, much higher than we could ever hope to get orally. And it’s a fast way to get these nutrients.
